Burnout, officially a disease

Read Time:1 Minute, 4 Second

Work fatigue – burnout – already has the official recognition of the WHO as a diagnosable problem and a phenomenon related to the profession.

In today’s culture, where the focus on the career keeps growing, and with it the hours spent above the norm, the volume of work or the stress that surrounds its environment, “burnout” as it is currently known, or exhaustion from work is almost back in epidemics.

The World Health Organization talks about a syndrome that comes as a result of chronic stress in the workplace, the consequences of which have not been properly treated. This is the first time such a connection has been officially made.

The three factors that drive this classification are:

• Depletion of energy and feeling of exhaustion
• Increasing mental distance that one creates with the workplace, or feelings of negativity and cynicism that the individual associates with work
• Reduction of professional efficiency

Workplace burnout isn’t just fatigue, it comes with chronic exhaustion and constant irritation. People who experience it lose their motivation and soon the decrease in productivity at work, while the series of problems caused by it are both emotional and physical.

According to researcher Dan Schawbe, burnout in the workplace has become a major concern as people work harder but feel they are not fairly compensated.
